Some time ago, I suggested TJ send me close-up details of what she was working on for the show.

She sent these, and I had no idea what I thought I was going to do with them.

Sometime around then, she asked me to send her a picture of my ear.

Eventually I got a decent shot of my ear without using a mirror.

Now that I'm posting her photographs of the ear in process, I am beginning to understand how my ear becomes sculpture.

I just wish I'd done it a long time ago.

 

 

 

 

 

J R's Ear Finished  

She said she liked my ear, and I say I love her sculpture and especially her photographs of her process.

 

 

 

 

 

 

And now I just want to see her show in April 2015
